14 Months Later

Not sure if everyone knows this but Braily and Jayla are exactily 14 months apart TO THE DAY! Both born on the 13th and both born on a Monday morning weird huh? Anyways 14 months really doesn't seem like that far apart, but look at these pictures to how much bigger one is to the other, its CRAZY!

Jayla is doing great! She sleeps alot and only really fusses one time a day. Now don't get me wrong she fusses durning the day on and off but only really throws a fit in the late afternoon. Other than that she is a great baby and hope shes stays on her good behavior. ha!

Here are a few shots of the girls side by side and a few close ups of Jayla, seems she is changing everyday.

Welcome Jayla Ann Collard

Wow, we are finally home with our new baby girl Jayla Ann. She was born Oct 13th at 8:12 in the morning. She weighed 7lbs 6oz and was 20.5" long. As you know from the post before that she had an appointment to be induced at 5AM on Monday, but that is not how the story went. Sunday night we were laying in bed ready to fall asleep still deciding on a name for our girl, just as i fell asleep Kate jumps out of bed saying her water broke! Holy smokes what a wake up call that is let me tell you. So we leave the house at 1:58 AM and head to the hospital ( I took a pic as you can see below). Kate did an amazing job in the hospital and little Jayla was born in no time at all.
Ms. Braily loves her little sister and wants to touch and kiss her all the time, she even fake cries when Jayla cries.

Katie's cousin Heather delivered her healthy baby boy on Tuesday afternoon at the same hospital. Crazy, we even sweet talked the nurses to give her the next room over from Katie's. There is a picture below of the two of them together just before we left.
Thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and for all the gifts and flowers we received, we greatly appreciate everything.

Inducing Monday the 13th

That's right, Kate went to the Doc on Friday and they said they would induce her labor Monday morning at 5 AM. Wow that is an early wake up call. That will mean that her and Braily will be exactly 14 months apart, and both have the 13th as their birthday. Easy for a Dad to remember! So that is where we will be on Monday and hopefully have a quick and safe labor. The Browns play Monday night so I told Katie to wrap it up before then so we can watch. Ha ha. Please pray that Katie and the new one have a safe and easy labor and that everything goes just as planned. I will keep you all posted of our new little girl as soon as she arrives.

On a pumpkin search

Last Saturday we went on a search for pumpkins with Braily. It was the perfect fall day, warm sun with a cool temp, perfect football weather. The leaves are just starting to turn color and we drove down to Szalay's Farm to search for pumpkins, walk the trails, and drink some hot cider. Braily was so excited she was walking around everywhere and looking at all the different pumpkins. She found the perfect one just her size, and got to rock in a big old rocking chair here are some shots from the day.
